At Spurstalk, abmiralsnackbar offers this translation:
Josean Querejeta, the president of Saski Baskonia as taken the departure of T. Splitter to the San Antonio Spurs next season as "something normal."
Querejeta has explained during the ceremony delivering the Championship watches [instead of rings, evidently] to the players of Caja that Splitter's progress and growth as a player leads him "compete in the best league in the world", and that it is his "goal and dream."
The president went on to say he is "aware" of the player's wishes to embark on the American adventure, although "there is, as yet, no confirmation," of this next step.
Although Tiago's farewell has yet to become official, Querejeta has already assumed Splitter will be absent from next season's campaign while at the same time thinking him "irreplaceable" as a player who has, from his arrival to the team, become the "dominant center," of the European scene.
He assumes it to be a certainty that Splitter will exercise his player's option to begin his NBA adventure with the Spurs, who have his rights.
I hope this guy is right.
